The Board of Safety Professionals (BCSP) recently announced the release of the CSP10 beta exam. Candidates can begin purchasing the beta exam on September 16, 2019. The results from the CSP10 beta exam are anticipated to be available sometime during the first quarter of 2020.

What does this mean for you?
Sometime during the first quarter of 2020, the BCSP will change over to the new CSP10 blueprint for the exam. In the past, the BCSP set a date on which you must purchase the current exam blueprint in order to be tested on the current blueprint. As of this writing, we do not know that date.
If you completed an exam review course or have been preparing and studying for the CSP® exam, it’s a good time for you to schedule your CSP® exam based on the CSP9 blueprint.
A few good reasons to schedule your CSP exam now…
- You are prepared and ready to take the CSP® exam.
- You took a review course or plan to before the end of the year.
- You don’t plan to take the beta CSP10 exam.
- You want to take the exam based on the CSP9 blueprint.
Bowen EHS will incorporate the blueprint changes into the Fall 2019 CSP® Online Review Course and the Winter 2020 ASP®/CSP® Online Review Course. To fill the gap, we developed a webinar to take you through the changes in the CSP10 update and discuss the domains where these changes occurred. This webinar will be presented live on November 12, 2019, at 8:00 pm ET.

Rest assured, when you participate in a Bowen EHS review course, it represents the current activity of the BCSP. Our instructors are thoroughly knowledgeable about the subject matter as well as the logistical information about the exam.
